marine depot posted a topic in Marine DepotHow to Mix Saltwater for Your Aquarium: A Step by Step Tutorial Our best tips to save time and make mixing saltwater go smoothly!
So, this morning I put together some RO/DI water with my salt and began my weekly chores. I like to do about 10% water changes weekly, I feel it's a small enough amount that there should be very little stress to the tank. After the water change was complete, I began to clean the algae, some areas a bit more "elbow grease" then others. Next is the outside; a good wipe down with a cloth of vinegar water. As I'm doing this, I look up at my new lights. I have the IT-2040 set. The glass has some splash residue on it. My question is this, how do I clean this? Should I use my vinegar cloth at night after they turn off? Should I wait a certain length of time before cleaning them after they turn off? Any and all advice is welcomed and appreciated!
